Poll: Support For Third Party Reaches All-Time High

The latest poll from Gallup shows support for a third American political party at its highest point ever recorded.

The poll surveyed 906 adults between January 29 and February 2 and found that 62 percent of survey participants think that the Republican and Democrat “parties do such a poor job representing the American people that a third party is needed.” Gallup began recording third-party support in 2003, and the previous high point for third-party support, 61 percent, came in September 2017.
